Other than that, got half the boom primed! Hopefully next week I can get some paint on, and hope the authentic rollers get delivered in time.
Because of this I checked out the Epifanes US website: what a great source of information!

I never found foam roller covers that resist epoxy primer yet… do these from Epifanes really work? Let me know how they do after you get them… they are over $5 each at their web shop….

Re: Repainting boom. Best practice on installing hardware

As others have said, Tefgel in fasteners and a thin plastic sheet on hardware.

I use PVC "pipe wrap" tape. Sold at Home Depot (and others) for wrapping gas lines where they come out of the ground. Its usually 2 inches wide and looks like quite thick black electrical tape. Being sticky (like electrical tape) it is easy to apply to the mating surface of the hardware and easy to cut to fit. It is quite thick so very effective at minimizing corrosion.

Yes, which I specifically looked for them for this job. A few years ago I painted the coachroof of my boat using Epifanes rollers purchased from Epifanes in Maine. Rollers lasted hours and never swelled or came off the core like these knock off.

They put down a very smooth finish, since I am rolling the finish, it is very important.

My issue is JD is charging a high, Epifanes, price while providing generic rollers. I would have bought them from Epifanes when I ordered the paint, and not ordered these knock off rollers.

Re: Repainting boom. Best practice on installing hardware

Go buy some drinks in square shaped, clear plastic containers. The thin plastic of the containers makes an excellent barrier and lasts forever. I use a coating of duralac on these for additional insulation and use tefgel for bolts and screws. I did my boom about 6 years ago using 2k epoxy as the primer/undercoat and 2k polyurethane top coat. I prepared the aluminium immediately before undercoat using an aluminium cleaner that contained hydroflouric acid as an active ingredient going off advice from a knowledgeable greetings of mine. It's still holding up well today.

Yea ignore this comment... I was wrong.. They apparently ARE authentic rollers but they are still not suitable for the Epoxy primer. They are good for the 2 part PAINTS however, just not the primer. Got the info from Epifanes directly .

My bad.. I wish i could edit/remove comments/posts.. just giving an update/retraction.

That’s exactly what I thought, hence my earlier comments. I am now trying the RedTree rollers, which are said to be better but also cost $7 each. I have this list on Amazon where I keep track of handy supplies: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1KPT0D9UIY54L

Thanks I appreciate the info.. will look at it. I do have a couple redtree rollers on hand, might give them a try. I do like how the foam rollers put down a dead on balls flat finish, but might try them again.

Side note, I found the chip brushes at Harbor freight to be about the same quality as most other retailers.. and at $10 or less for 36 (if you catch a sale right) , they are a great buy!
